CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT DISCLOSURE
On January 1, 2012, the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) went into effect in the State of California. As a result, many companies (above a certain size) manufacturing or selling products in California are required to disclose their efforts (if any) to address the issues of human trafficking and slavery, thereby allowing consumers to make better, more informed choices regarding the products they buy and the companies they choose to support.
U.S. Auto Parts Network, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, "US Auto Parts") strive to achieve and maintain high standards of corporate integrity and ethical behavior.
